According to a report from Leichtman Research Group reported by Business Insider, Netflix is more popular among American adults than DVR. According to the chart, "in just the last six years, Netflix has gone from being in 28% of US households to being in 54%."
Netflix has become incredibly popular in the past decade, having first transitioned from DVDs in your mailbox to streaming, and then to original programming, Netflix has become a powerhouse in entertainment and in many ways validated video contents migration from TV sets to computer screens.
